Halvarssons Macan jeans in blue (HAL718)

£199.00

Product Information

Some single-layer jeans are stronger than others. Some are much stronger than leather; others are perhaps more suited to urban riding. But the hallmark of a single-layer jean is how easy it is to wear. They can be as light and comfortable to wear as a pair of Levi's. The Macan is at the heavier end of the single-layer spectrum, and they have a more relaxed fit than some jeans. They come with Halvarssons’ Level 2 armour in the knees and hips, but what makes the jeans so remarkable is that, under the new CE regulations, they are AAA rated. That’s a higher rating than any textile, touring pant on the market. And we reckon that means the Macans have a ‘slide time’ of around four seconds. This puts them in the same ballpark as leather. If you want a highly-protective, single-layer jean with a relaxed fit, you should check the Macans out.

Reviews

David Buck: Mr

I'm a 31/32" leg length so bought a pair of the normal leg (33.5") version thinking a could turn up at the bottoms however these were far too long with the knee armour in the wrong place so exchanged for the short 30" versions. These fit perfectly so in my view are longer than advertised. Great looking jeans on and they really do feel like a standard pair of jeans. Knee and hip armour is adjustable and the hip armour is in the correct place unlike some jeans where it is halfway down the outside of your thigh. Feel like good quality and if like me, you were loath to pay £350 for a single layer jean then these are a fantastic compromise. Can easily see these being my go to pair of jeans this summer. Definitely worth the money.

Dave McNally: Mr

I've only dropped these one star because of the sizing. The quality feels great but I feel the only true review of the manufactur could come after seeing how the protect in a fall, and that is not in my plans. The sizing - well the legs are very long. I'm 6'4 with a 33/34 leg and these need shortening in the regular length! The knee armour hits the right spot though. They are also tight in the crotch and thigh area. I'm not sure why bike jeans all seem to be built for people that skipped leg day, but I can't get the hip armour in. Just not happening, but that is the same in all my bike jeans, even my Roadskins that have a stretch panel to help. Perhaps motolegends could use some of their influence to point out we all don't have skinny thighs???

Andy Hodgson: Fit like a glove!

Great jeans, fit like a glove. My first pair of motorcycle jeans and had read the reviews commenting on leg length but I shouldn't have worried. First time on normal leg length is fine and the knee pads, and hip pads are in the right place. Great value too, I couldn't bring myself to spend up to £400 - Halvarssons gear is always my first choice anyway so win, win. Couldn't be more pleased. Now bring me that horizon!!
